Abstract

The science and art of altering genetic material with the aim of enhancing desirable features and removing undesirable traits is genetic engineering. This can be somatic and germline editing. When scientists are going to meddle with the germline this is natural to raise many eyebrows from the society, which is more or less, still believes that some matters must be left to God. But if we see the potential benefits of this research which seems to be vast and which can remove the sufferings in the society, a voice naturally comes from the conscience that why we should stop this. This research and clinical applications seems to be double edged weapon and naturally in such cases we need to apply our mind in depth so that there are no deleterious effects on the society with the advancement of genetic engineering.
